Denmark-based Ghanaian entrepreneur, Georgina, quit her well-paying job as a dental hygienist to start her business and work as a hairstylist in Copenhagen.
At age nine, she immigrated to Denmark to live with her parents and has been in the Northern European country for 31 years.
In an interview with blogger Zionfelix, Georgina disclosed that her job as a dental hygienist was lucrative, but she wanted to venture into a new field.
Georgina began her new venture as a hobby and decided to make a career out of it. She recalled braiding the hair of family members and church folks at age 14.
The mother of four, who balances her work with raising her children, has successfully established herself in her industry.
Though she complained about the cold weather, Georgina mentioned that life is good in Denmark.
The daring Ghanaian entrepreneur has been running her business alone for 16 years.
”I do the barbing and fixing the weaves myself,” she said.
